Passions, Interests and Experience:

In aviation I am passionate about why we do things, the way we do. What influences us to make certain decisions, is it the human limitations or culture, or maybe just our personal experiences. Armed with this information, how can we improve ourselves, how can we complete our job to a higher standard.

Outside of flying I love to travel and explore new places and culture.

Why did you want to become a pilot?

? I did grow up around pilots and after travelling I realised it was as much getting on an aircraft as it was going to a new place. As soon as I had my first flying lesson I knew I had found what I wanted to do

Was training a breeze or did you find it a challenge?

Training was interesting, there was lots of new and different theory, but as soon as I started training I could not get enough information.

What was most challenging?

? Getting through exams and trying to build hours at the same tim

What do you enjoy most about your job?

? There are 2 thing I always enjoy, firstly the view and different weather you get to experience. Secondly, working with different people all the time. The day to day challengers that you experience while working is also something I really enjoy.

What is most challenging about your job?

? Early mornings, but they do give the best sunrise
